How to become an EatSmart Restaurant?
A participating restaurant shall hold a Business Registration Certificate and/or other permit(s) or licence(s) relating to its business as required under the Laws of Hong Kong, comply with the terms and conditions of the “EatSmart Restaurant Star+” Campaign (ESR Star+ Campaign) set out in the “EatSmart Restaurant Star+” Guidebook and provide “EatSmart Dishes” in accordance with the relevant nutritional criteria.
A newly enrolled restaurant can start as a One-star EatSmart Restaurant (ESR) by offering at least five “More Fruit and Vegetables” dishes on a daily basis.
To become a Two-star ESR, a restaurant is required to offer at least five “More Fruit and Vegetables” dishes and “3 Less” dishes on a daily basis, and nominate two staff members to attend a briefing session and pass the assessment. All existing ESRs, therefore, will automatically become Two-star ESRs. If a restaurant offers at least five “More Fruit and Vegetables” dishes as well as “EatSmart Promotion” on a daily basis, it can also become a Two-star ESR.
A restaurant can become a Three-star ESR if it offers “More Fruit and Vegetables” dishes and “3 Less” dishes as well as the “EatSmart Promotion” on a daily basis.
All ESRs shall display the “EatSmart Restaurant Star+” Decal at a prominent location, use the “EatSmart Dishes” menu jackets or put the “EatSmart Restaurant Star+” Logos on the main menu or table information cards.
Enrolment is free of charge. Please see the table below for details:
